A New Home for Beaver
by Henna Goudzand Nahar
Age Range: Under_5
When a Beaver starts to build his new home on the river bank both Elephant and Pig are very put out. They tell him in no uncertain terms that he is not welcome so the Beaver sadly packs up and leaves. But it is not long before Elephant and Pig discover that forgetting Beaver is not as easy as they had thought.
A New Home for Beaver is a witty picture book from the Netherlands by Henna Goudzand Hahar is complimented by the expressive pen-and-ink watercolour illustrations of Jeska Verstegen. They provide terrific comic touches, such as Elephant’s bowler hat and the bow tie that he is continually straightening when he is nervous or upset. This is a lovely tale about friendship.
